You'll also notice that it has a metal rim all around it. the side. Unlike the first generation of the phone, the one plus one, which was made of polycarbonate around the edging so this definitely looks more premium. On the back you've got a 13 mega pixel camera with a larger sensor than before, so low light pictures should be a lot better. Up here above that is dual LED flash and you've got laser focus right underneath. This button on the left spine is called the alert slider, so you can slide that up, down, or to the middle to adjust your notifications setting. And on the front end here, the home button also doubles as a fingerprint reader. One plus is custom Oxygen interface Right on top of Android 5.1 here which is what it will ship with. Inside you've got a 1.8GHZ Octocore Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor which pretty top of the line. You can remove the back cover either to swap in another cover or to add one of two sim cards to the sim card slot. There is no removable battery and there is no microSD card storage. Instead the phone comes with two options 64 gigabytes or 16 gigabytes. Also, if you follow these things, you'll be excited to know that this phone has USB Type-C at the bottom as its charging connector.
